Will Megyn Kelly's First NBC Interview Be with Vladimir Putin? 

NBC News chairman Andy Lack has been in Russia this week trying to land an interview with President VLADIMIR PUTIN

The gossip is that the network COULD give that interview to MEGYN KELLY, to start her NBC career off with a bang.  That's not a done deal though.  They could also give it to one of their established stars, like MATT LAUER on "Today" or LESTER HOLT on the "Nightly News".

A source says, quote, "It is not clear who would do the Putin interview.  News chiefs decide based on who would be best for the job.  This isn't Megyn's interview . . . yet."

Megyn's going to have a daytime show at either 9:00 or 10:00 A.M. in the fall . . . and a Sunday night show that could launch as early as this summer.
